Publisher's Summary

In war, great commanders lead soldiers into hell to do the impossible.

They were called Easy Company, but their mission was never easy. Immortalized as the Band of Brothers, they suffered huge casualties while liberating Europe in an unparalleled record of bravery under fire. Dick Winters led them through the Battle of the Bulge, the attack on Foy, where Easy Company reached its breaking point, and finally into Germany, by which time each member had been wounded. Outside Munich, they liberated an S.S. death camp and captured Berchtesgaden, Hitler's alpine retreat.

Beyond Band of Brothers is Winters' memoir, based on his wartime diary, but it also includes his comrades' untold stories. Only Winters was present from the activation of Easy Company until the war's end. This is their story, told in his words for the first time.

Exceptionalism!

Not only does this book describe WWII from Winters standpoint, he also goes into depth on how to be a good leader, soldier and most importantly a good person.

Not as good as B of B.

Not bad, but would have been better with less patting himself on the back and putting others down for their "limited combat experience"

A true American Hero

Major Dick Winters was a selfless leader. He inspired courage and leadership in his men by example. I am honored to have read his story.

Narration is distracting story is very good

I am a big fan of the Band of Brothers mini series. The memoirs of Major Winters are a good listen and I would encourage those who are interested in the topic give it a try. The narration however is distracting. The voices done by Tom Weiner are not on par with other narrators and at times he appears to have reread passages during the performance.

An Outstanding Book

What a great memoir from Major Dick Winters. For anyone who wants to be a better person and/or leader, this is a must read book. My only regret is that reading this book had to come to an end.

World war two personal history

If you enjoyed the HBO mini series Band of Brothers you will appreciate this. It goes into detail about the people involved and what happened after the war. The book even talks about the Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Stephen Ambrose moments! #Audible20

I love band of brothers

And I love the story of the 506th and was introduced by the miniseries band of Brothers. I have learned a lot about leadership from dick winters and if you enjoy any of the other parts of band ofbrothers then you will enjoy his memoirs
